The College of Shari`ah and Islamic Studies and the College of Da`wah and Fundamentals of Religion (female section) organized, last Monday, a meeting between female graduates and employers at Al-Jafali Hall 3, at the university headquarters in Al-Zahir.
Female graduates met representatives from Midad non-profit Institution, Is`ad Endowment Institution, Hajar Endowment Company, Al-Shaima' Center, Al-Lu'lu' wa Al-Marjan Center, and Wa`i Association.
Meetings were short, easy, and intensive. Each body participated with a special bar code to enable female graduates to access the websites of these bodies and obtain what they desire of information, as these bodies offer two types of work opportunities: employment and voluntary work.
The activity included several sections: Shari`ah and Islamic Studies, History Department, College of Da`wah, and the College of Shari`ah and Islamic Studies Graduate Unit.
Two workshops were included in the activity during the ceremony at the library of the College of Shari`ah. One of them was entitled, "Strategic Planning", and the second was entitled, "What will Follow Graduation?"
In this context, the Vice Dean of the College of Shari`ah and Islamic Studies for Training and Community Service, Dr. Maha Al-Utaibi, pointed out that the activity aims at participating in building contacts between female graduates and employers, and measuring the extent of contentment on the two sides in a way that is in harmony with the Saudi vision 2030. She added that such activities build bridges of communication between the university and the graduates.
On her part, the Vice Dean of the College of Da`wah and Fundamentals of Religion for Educational Affairs, Dr. Su`ad Babaqi, stated that all what is offered to graduates is their due rights, and asserted the continuity of the affiliation between the university and the graduates.
She also added that graduates are part of this entity as they are the outcome of these colleges, explaining that the university's role is to make sure that the graduates benefit from what they have studied.
She talked in her speech about the importance of holding such meetings that gather female graduates, employers, leaders, and the academic staff in different departments. She justified this by saying, "We desire to open broad horizons for female graduates in obtaining work by shedding light on what they may not be aware of. Thus, we help and support them to achieve what they desire of serving their Makkan community in general, and the pilgrims and visitors of the Sacred Mosque in particular."
